We have been going to Sakura for many years. After Mr. Ann changed ownership, the experience has been less and less. We usually go for family birthdays. First they stopped giving pictures to remember your evening. Last night we took our grandson for his 13th birthday. The food was good but the chief seemed to be bored and did not... More

Considering the amazing (insert sarcasm here) customer service I received at Takamatsu, I had pretty low expectations when I went to Sakura Teppan and Sushi this past Sunday. What caught me off guard was that the gentleman at the front, Caleb, greeted us with a smile and let us choose which table we would like to sit at. Yes! No... More

We entered the restaurant at 7:00 p.m. on a Friday night and were greeted by two very cheery, smiling hostesses asking us if it will be two for dinner and our preference for where we would like to sit. We chose the outside patio area since there was a nice evening with a gentle breeze. There are misters out on... More

This is a "special occasion" restaurant from my boys (ages 7 and 8). They love the fire and the show that the chefs put on. Always great food. A little pricey, but worth it for a special occasion.

Nice selection of cooked Japanese food. Really liked their Korean Barbeque. Service was very good. Nice space to eat in and can do Korean grill right at table.

To be entertained while your dinner is being cooked is fantadtic, for that food to taste great also, divine. We had a wonderful dinner of steak and shrimp, vegetables and fried rice cooked right in front of our eyes and everything tasted great. A very nice evening

Enjoyed having lunch here with my family! Not the best Japanese food I've necessarily had, but tasty, generous portions, well-priced with friendly staff and cooks. I read the other reviews that said that this restaurant has lost some loyal customers - too bad! It could explain the quiet lunch crowd we encountered at 12:30 on a weekday.

The other reviews do not do this place justice. Yes it's an old building BUT the staff was friendly, entertaining, and the food was great! I was scared to even go here based on the prior reviews but I left not only satisfied but impressed! One of the best teppenyaki restaraunts I've been to just based on the fun experience... More

This was once a nice place to eat with visitors to town. Now it is really bad. The place needs a facelift and clean up. The overall impression is that it is dirty and greasy. The food still tastes OK but the cooks at the tepanyaki tables are no longer entertaining they just give the impression that they want to... More
